UPDATE: Two in critical condition following violent fight in Castries community

Two men are in critical condition at Victoria Hospital after allegedly inflicting stab wounds on each other during a fight in Odum City, Bois Patat on Saturday evening, Nov. 11, according to law enforcement officials.

The victims have been identified as Kernius, 29, of Morne Du Don, Castries who sustained a stab wound to the neck, and Miguel Scotland, 26, of Chase Gardens, Castries who sustained a stab wound to the chest.

Emergency officials were called at 6:20 p.m.

Subsequently, two ambulances were dispatched to the scene, one from Gros Islet and the other from Castries.

Both were rushed to Victoria Hospital in critical condition.

St. Lucia News Online (SNO) received two voicenotes, allegedly about the incident.

“Two man were having a knife war, jukking up each other and thing. One get stab up in his chest and one get stab up in his neck.

“One of them ain’t dead yet but it sound like the one that get stab in his neck more critical,” the voicenotes state.

SNO was also told by another source that the stabbing “victim ran and collapsed on a step, appears critical”.

Sources also said when the victim with the stab wound to the neck was brought to the hospital he was “pulse less” but they were able to revive him and schedule him for emergency surgery.

The other victim was reportedly scheduled for surgery as well.

  1. Jesus intercede for us. Quench the darkness hovering over St. Lucia. Show us your glory Lord Jesus. Save us from the evil one.

    1 John 3:10

    By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.

  2. If they should be in the same hospital, each will be worried that the other recovers before him, for fear of reprisals. I can imagine each asking how the other is doing.

  8. Something terribly wrong. Needs serious investigating. Ambulance coming from Gros Islet to Odlum City to transport a person to VH? Then the report says the person was in critical condition. Obviously that person could have died in the very ambulance!

    • The ambulance could have come from Vieux Fort the point is it came to render assistance and they got the individuals to the hospital in time. We need to commend them when they do good not look for issues

    • I dont get your point. The ambulance that is available was dispatched. You people just like to complain at the wrong people.
